What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry describes the range of treatments given to patients requiring a return to full dental health. In order to ensure your oral health and hygiene, your dentist may use any of the following treatments:
 

  • Teeth whitening
  • Braces
  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Gum surgery
  • Dental implants
  • Bone and gum rebuilding
  • Full and partial dentures
     

Replacing Missing Teeth

The aim of restorative dentistry is to preserve the natural teeth as much as possible. Missing teeth can be simply replaced with a dental implant, bridge, or full or partial denture. Replacing missing teeth is important for your dental health. Missing teeth can place extra pressure on the remaining teeth which have to do more work to chew food. Gaps and empty spaces in the mouth are prone to developing cavities, since larger areas of teeth are left exposed and invite a buildup of harmful plaque. Missing teeth can also cause the face to lose its structure and sag.

What are the Benefits of this Procedure?

There are many benefits of this treatment but for now let’s just discuss two important ones.

  1. Improved functionality: It is a restorative procedure that makes the task of chewing and eating too hot or cold food items possible. It can restore one or more teeth and provides support to the healthy ones.

  2. Aesthetic appeal: Self-confidence drops with the presence of gaps between the teeth. In this case, dental bridges and implants can be used, not only to fill the gaps but also improve the aesthetic value of your mouth.

Am I Eligible for this Treatment?

There is no particular treatment that is applicable to every patient. It depends on the condition of the individual.

A dentist will examine will initially examine your mouth to determine what procedure in needed to fix your problem. With the advancement in technology it is now easy to improve the quality of your life.

What do I need to consider?

When deciding on the right restorative dental treatment, you need to consider the extent of your dental damage as well as your budget. Your dentist will at first aim to restore your natural teeth, before opting for full or partial dentures (as you must commit to removing and cleaning them daily). However, if you have many missing teeth and have underlying complications preventing you from having dental implants, full or partial dentures may be a good option for you.

How much does it cost?

To determine the cost of your treatment, you’ll need to book an initial consultation with your dentist. After carrying out a full examination of your teeth and gums, your dentist will decide on the correct treatment, draw up a treatment plan, and provide estimates of the cost.
